Compendium of Curiosities Challenge at Studio L3 and this week it is page 44, Tim's Chipped Enamel technique.
For my first attempt, I dug some metal pieces out of my stash and followed directions and ended up with a giant mess, all of the texture rubbed off even though it was completely cooked. My dear hubby decided to get involved and we tried again. He carefully cleaned all of the metal pieces to make sure the surface had no oils on it and after blowing distress embossing powder all over the kitchen we came up with a few pieces that sort of worked. I have distress embossing powder everywhere - oh well, the kitchen needed a good clean up anyway!
I used a piece of textured grunge paper for the background and it is a good thing this material is so forgiving... it has been inked, painted, washed, painted and painted and inked - Great testament to the durability of this product!
The words are from ArtChix. I hope you are enjoying the last few days of summer and that we can all scatter a little joy today - Cheers!
